Minimum display resolution for G6/G7/Gen 8 servers BIOS?

I can't find this anywhere -- does BIOS on these systems have a minimum pixel count for a VGA monitor?  I need to provision a small display at a remote site and I'm wondering if 800x600 will work, if 1024x768 is required etc. and have not been able to find anything on the intarwebz.

 

Thanks.

The standard RBSU screen is an 80x25 text screen. 800x600 should work fine. If your OS provides a GUI, some tools like hpsum require a 1024x768 display area

Thanks!  Just what I needed to know.  For the most part the usage will just be occasional BIOS / option ROM stuff, mostly we use the serial console and iLO redirection, but occasionally we get a box we don't know the Administrator password to etc. and need a local display.  Some of the models we're looking at are as small as 7"@ 800x600  and I wanted to be sure they would work.
